Mother's Day Special

One of the questions I got asked fairly often back when I was doing my 365 project was if I planned on selling my work. At the time I would always answer...eventually.

I hemmed and hawed over this for a couple of years before getting a Zenfolio account a little over two years ago. I never set it up...I was stuck on what to charge. With all of the books, blogs and magazines that tell you how to take photos, how to edit photos, how to ...and so on, there is really no place to go to find information on how best to price, market and sell your fine art photography. My biggest issue was figuring out how to price my work and along with that how to market without spamming my friends and family with "please buy my work" e-mails.Well a year went by and my Zenfolio account went unused.

A year or so later I thought I'd try again with Smugmug, which I liked because they use Bay Photos as one of their printers and they are local to me. This time I succeeded in putting up my site, I finally priced my work based on reviewing a bunch of other photographers and going with the average. I still fail at marketing and have yet to sell a print. My account expires in June and with Smugmugs price increase I doubt I'll renew. So...if you would like a print of mine for say, a Mother's Day gift, you can use the following coupon code to get 25% off on photos in the Flower Gallery.
